A Nano Poblano Prompt:  Make up a new holiday

Holidays should be declared here every time we get heavily snowed upon.  Here’s the blurb from Environment Canada this morning:

Snowfall Warning:  Heavy snowfall today and tonight.

10 cm of snow has already fallen in Grande Prairie and another 15-25 cm is expected by Sunday morning.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.

Exactly who is that last paragraph addressing?  People on holiday, visiting from Mars?

I had already decided to stay longer since the kids have Monday and Tuesday off school, and it’s a great feeling not to have to rush home for anything.  Anyway, snow days as holidays!  That’s my suggestion.  So, basically, nothing but intermittent scattered holidays from November to March.

Hope everyone is having a super fun weekend, snowed in or not.
